Vettriano Suite, Hotel Du Vin, Glasgow

1 September 2014

Words: Gareth Rees / Images: Hotel Du Vin, Glasgow

Part of the Hotel du Vin chain, which boast 15 luxury properties housed in beautiful buildings across the United Kingdom, Glasgow’s Hotel du Vin & Bistro is located in the city’s fashionable West End. Originally opened in One Devonshire Gardens, the 49-room boutique property now occupies a terrace of five listed Victorian buildings – and it is warm, elegant and welcoming throughout, whether you’re enjoying a dram of welcome scotch in front of the fire in the comfortable reception area, a superb cocktail in the bar, a first-class meal in the Bistro or just relaxing in your suite. 

Unsurprisingly, Hotel du Vin is popular with celebrities, and the impressive duplex Vettriano Suite is named for Scottish painter Jack Vettriano, who has stayed in the room and whose prints are hung on its walls. Upstairs, where a four-poster bed and a freestanding roll top bath add an extra touch of luxury, the large bay windows look out to the tree-lined front of the property, while downstairs is occupied by a grand, sensual, subterranean bathroom with twin monsoon showers.
